USA Bladesmith, W2 tool steel, African Zebra wood, flared brass guard, NR
Good steel, tool steel W2 forged down to the desired shape, then progressively sanded by hand to a desired finish, (600 grit). Once forged the blade is normalized and the quenched and tempered. The desired hardness is 60 RHC. Only a single bevel, easier to slice, carve, debone, and sharpen if needed. The knife feels great in hand always conscious of where the blade tip is. This design is slightly forward for more aggressive cutting. The guard is solid 1/2” brass, hand filed to exacting fit to the tang. Water or any fluid will not penetrate to rust the interior tang, which extends well into the handle. It is epoxied and pinned. Tiger or Zebra wood is a dense exotic wood. You will find it ages in color to a gorgeous honey amber color. It has been sealed with Tru Oil. The sheath is slightly funnel shaped to allow easy entry, yet molded to accommodate the flared guard and secure the fit with a pop. A swivel dangler keeps the knife from binding while moving. The knife is 10” overall with a 5.25” blade. A keeper knife, or trade up if you want to! Please ask me questions, I am happy to answer. I ship prompt and pay prompt.
